The people of Karosta

by , January 7th, 2007  |  Published in Exhibitions, Humanistic Views

As Hern42 wrote, in Karosta, there are wrecked buildings, relics of a past when it was a russian navy base ; in the middle of it, a shining jewel : their golden orthodox cathedral. An art center, too, where people try to introduce modern culture in a place that has become a ghetto. And there is this crazy group of european artist/architects collectively known as Exyzt (www.exyzt.org), who could not of course prevent themselves from being attracted to this weird environment and from creating from scratch an art festival there, for the people of Karosta. Oh yes, because in Karosta, there are also people.
